I went to Target today for some therapy. I've been a bit of an emotional mess the last few days, and also my jaw is getting sore from the clenching. So it was good timing for a successful/fun Target trip:
This is the crowning glory, so I should really leave it for last but I can't wait. I've been wanting this John Derian print ever since I first saw it for $24.99. Then I saw it for $17.48 and didn't buy it. Then I saw it for $12.48 and didn't buy it. Today I saw it for $6.24 and I BOUGHT IT.
This is the crowning glory as far as Elizabeth is concerned: rainbow-sparkle Hello Kitty shoes. These weren't even on clearance, but they were on sale for $10 down from $14.99. I can't even explain why I bought them. Oh, of course I can: (1) rainbow (2) sparkle (3) Hello Kitty.
For Henry, a new dinosaur shirt, not on sale but only $5.00, and my policy on dinosaur shirts is "Buy them." And pants on clearance 50% off, $5.00.
I did not want a little pot of lip balm for $3.44 when I could get something very similar for a dollar. But for $.84, yes I will try antioxidants/E/aloe/chamomile/mint, thank you.
Boring but satisfying: $2.54 tape refill for my chicken, marked down to $.63.
Not a huge clearance, but I have trouble resisting girl stuff: pink patent leather shoes, $6.98 down from $9.99.
Four new hand towels, $.98 each down from $3.99 each.
My favorite shower gel, $2.50 down from $5.00.
Not even on sale, but I'm hoping these foot supporty thingies will help my shins to hurt less when I walk/jog. I have arches that totally flatten when I stand up, and these supports have low, medium, and high snap-ins so you (or rather _I_) can choose the one that feels best.
This set of 4 bowls was only $1.99 to begin with, but it's pleasing to get them for $.48: we have another set (the yellows/greens set) that we used as berry-picking/outdoors bowls last summer, but there are 7 of us and only 4 bowls, so it's nice to have more.
Gift ideas for an 8-year-old, part 2 of 2 - Last week I talked about the gifts we were getting/considering for Edward, who is turning 8 next month. This week it’s Elizabeth’s turn: not “girl gifts,” ...
